I am up and running again. Many thanks for all your care and concern (via emails and comments). I really appreciate it. The love you given are even better than medication.
Last weekend was definitely a good resting period for me. Thankfully, hubby was around and he ferried the kids for their lesson while I rested at home (in peace).
I spent whatever time I had (be in on the sofa or in the bedroom) dozing away. Cat nap is better than no rest.
This morning, I was telling myself that I am wrong about the weather. The haze seems to be gone. On the way home, I witnessed a nice skyline and then next I saw black cloud looming in the distance from the west. Instead of feeling gloomy that a wet day is coming on a blue Monday, I welcome it!
I was hoping that this heavy downpour will clear the sky ever more. On the bad note, I secretly wished that it is a sunny day as well because I am doing a fondant cake for a client and it is sweating like mad. Luckily, there isn't much 3D, or else I am sure to stress out as the client only come by to pick up the cake in the evening.
I am not going to let this ruin my day, I am not going to let my inconsiderate neighbour ruined my day too. For those who visited me before, I am sure the front door to the rubbish chute is no distance too far to take the bag of rubbish. Instead she left it by the lift entrance. Totally no shame, that we are seeing her disgusting action. What is wrong with her?
Okay, great I let it off my chest, now I am going to carry on my daily life.
Today has been good to me as well as I managed to tick off many to do items on my list.
A recipe from a library book caught my eyes as well. I was eager to try out as I was telling A that I wonder how a Steamed Brownie taste like.
I was told that too much baking is actually bad for face as it creates more pigmentation. I definitely have pigmentation but whether from baking or not, it has yet to be proven. Nevertheless, I am glad that I have found another way to have my cakes!
This Steamed Brownie is really easy to prepare and it tasted great too. Do try it!
